3 Tips for Achieving Your Goals in 2017

If you have already given up on your goals for 2017, there are three things you can do to get back on track and achieve them.
Right now, many people have probably given up on their resolutions for 2017. Today, I want to encourage you to achieve your goals.

I think most people fail because they don’t have a clear plan or they don’t want what they said they did to begin with. There is always a price to pay when you work toward a goal, and you have to ask yourself, “Am I willing to pay that price?”

If you have fallen off the path toward success, here are three things you can do to get back on track:

1. Be clear on what you truly want. Many times, you go with the popular answer, and that is not the right way to go. If you really don’t want to achieve your goal, then you are not going to sacrifice what you need to do to meet it; instead, you will just give up.

Resolutions may or may not happen; commit to goals instead.

2. Tell the people in your life what you are committed to. The key word in that sentence is “committed.” I don’t call them New Year’s resolutions; I call them goals because I am committed to my goals. Resolutions may or may not happen. Find the people in your life who will be your cheerleaders and hold you accountable.

3. Break your goals down into daily, actionable things that you can do. Each time that you do them, you will be closer and closer to your goal. When you create these action items, it’s important to be specific. If your goal is to be in the best shape ever, put those items on a calendar daily or weekly. Treat them like the most important appointments of your day.

In short, don’t put yourself second. Make sure that you get what you want and honestly deserve in 2017. If I can ever be of any help to you, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
